Wexford Irish Style Cream Ale


From Total Wine:

This authentic Irish Ale dates back to 1810 from Co. Wexford. Brewed to an original family recipe using Irish malt and hops, Wexford has a smooth mellow creaminess from the widget in the can.


No food left by this point.


Vince: The most beautiful beer I’ve ever seen.

Josh: Looks amazing.

Alec: When I first poured it I was worried that it was all head, but it quickly settled down and looked perfect. It looked like a beer straight out of a publicity shot.


Alec: Butter.

Josh: Beautiful smell.

Alec: It smells like head but I don’t want to say that.


Alec: It’s like cream soda beer.

Vince: In a blind test I’d say this was Guinness but…better. A vanilla taste with a little bit of a smokey aftertaste. Hobbits would drink this. Or Paula Deen, this is Paula Deen’s beer!

Josh: Tastes fantastic.


Alec: I would probably throw up if I drank more than two of these, just from how dense it is. I feel like it was invented for Irish people who don’t like Guinness.

Vince: Smooth.

Final Thoughts

Alec: I still have half a glass left. I like it, it’s drinkable. Not something you could pound five in a row, but I would drink it again.

Josh: I feel like if I went out and this was on the menu, it would take me so long to decide if I wanted to drink this I would just order something else instead.

Alec: You could order this beer and keep nursing it for over 30 minutes and it would still look like a fresh pour.

Vince: One of the most good looking beers I’ve seen. Very drinkable, I could drink one or two of these, but I’d probably need to be carted home.

Alec: And not because you were drunk.

Josh: Because you were bloated.

Alec: Remember that scene in Willy Wonka where they’re in the room with the bubbles…

Sometime later…

Vince: Very easy to drink. It’s like when I go to Kilwin’s and get a Cake Batter Milkshake.

Alec: A Cake Batter Milkshake, fatty?
